ADB launched a review in February 2010 to assess the effectiveness of the Public Communications Policy implementation and to recommend changes as necessary. The review actively engaged interested individuals and organizations.
A first consultation draft of the Policy, which was extensively discussed with a wide range of stakeholders in a number of ADB member countries within and outside Asia and the Pacific, was released in June 2010. This second consultation draft takes into account the various comments received. Findings of ADB's global stakeholders' perceptions surveys of opinion leaders are also taken into consideration.
